This is Derek Miller, Speaking on Business. Jorge Fierro came to Utah homeless and unable to speak English, and here he built successful businesses on a delicious recipe from his mother and a desire to feed new friends. He’s here today with a special message.
Utah is special. In my career, I have experienced many challenges! But I have also miracles and a spirit to this community that sustained my dreams — the same spirit that is seeing us through the coronavirus.
We have come a long way, but we need to finish our journey to once-and-for-all put COVID-19 behind us. And we can do this. Sixty-three percent of us, age 18-and-older, have been vaccinated. To help achieve immunity in our community, we have the goal of getting 70 percent vaccinated by July 4th. That’s just a few days away, so I am asking my fellow business leaders to encourage those who work for you to protect themselves, those they love, and your business.
Give them time off. Maybe provide an incentive. Host a “pop-up” clinic at your business. There is so much we can do to meet this goal and beat coronavirus.
To learn more, please go to coronavirus.utah.gov and join us in protecting those we love, those we serve, and those we depend on.
Together we can beat COVID-19. We are so close to herd immunity. The vaccine is safe and effective. Let’s “Bring It Home!”
